Protect. Educate. Empower.

It's what we do for 1.9 million children each week.

This is what the power of play can do:

  • Giving girls a voice

    In Mali, 96% of our teachers make sure that girls voices and opinions are heard in the classroom every day. Only 70% of teachers of non-Right To Play teachers do this.

  • Say No to Unwanted Sex

    In Tanzania, 59% of girls in our programs believe they can say no to unwanted sex after 18 months of programming vs. just 13% before our programs.

  • Building peaceful communities

    In conflict torn Burundi, 83% of children in Right To Play programs have significantly increased their peacebuilding and conflict resolution skills vs 47% in non Right To Play programs.

  • Preventing HIV

    In Uganda, 91% of children in our programs know how to prevent transmission of HIV vs. 50% of children not in our programs.

  • Keeping boys safe

    Peer violence in schools in Pakistan, a challenge faced by as many as 94% of boys in some schools, was reduced by 25% in schools with Right To Play programs.

  • Doing better in school

    In Pakistan, children taught by Right To Play trained teachers scored 10% higher on standardized tests than children with no Right To Play trained teachers.

We bring the power of play to 15 countries, each with their own set of challenges for children.

In these countries, we empower girls to resist early marriage and to continue their education. We teach children how to protect themselves from diseases like HIV and malaria. We help child laborers return to school. And we inspire refugee youth living in dire camp conditions to heal and succeed.
